Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon - Patty Lovell,David Catrow

The book Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell is one of my all time favorite books and there is no doubt that this will be a book that I will read with my future students. This story is about a little girl named Molly Lou Melon who was short, had teeth she could stack pennies on and a voice that sounded like a frog being squeezed by a boa constrictor (and so on). Her grandmother gave her so many words of encouragement and she felt so confident with herself. Sadly she was made fun of in school for those charactoristics but eventually made friends after the stunning snowflake she created. I just adore this book. Something that I would do with my students would be to have them draw and color self portraits. I would then have my students write three things they like about them selves to attach to the bottom f the portrait.I would rate this book a five out of five stars and it is listed as a ad560L on the Lexile scale.

Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon
Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon - Patty Lovell,David Catrow

This book is my absolute favorite children's book. It is the story of a young girl, Molly Lou Melon, who moves to a new school and does not quite look or act like her peers. It teaches students about diversity and how it is okay to not be like everyone else. It encourages students to embrace who they are and to be confident in who they are. This book could be a great read aloud for the first day of school. It could also introduce a lesson on character analysis.

 

Lexile Level: AD560L

A Dozen Truths: 12 Works of Fiction - Lou Aronica,Aaron Brown

A Dozen Truths by assorted authors
When I realized who was involved in this compilation of writings I knew it would be a great read.
What I had not expected was to find so many different genres that I don't normally read and was a good change.
Each chapter has a different author where a short summary of their works and their bio are included.  At the very end there are more indepth excerpts and more about the authors writings.
Enjoyed a large majority of the stories and lessons learned, some leaving a smile on my face at the end. Some genres I just can't seem to get into-sci fic and horror/thriller.
Had never heard of www.authorsfirst.com  site so had to go check it out to understand about it.
Enjoyed many of the stories because I was able to relate to them in my lifetime of things that have happened to me or a family member, brought back a lot of happy memories..
Found a lot of new authors I'll be on the lookout for their works.
Received this book via one of the authors in the anthology via The Story Plant and this is my honest review.
